Abstract

“Fanfare”, Op.31, played by the Kiev Philharmonic Orchestra, was featured on BBC Radio 3’s flagship early evening music programme, “In Tune”, hosted by Clemency Burton-Hill, as an appropriate prelude to the announcement of the International Opera Awards shortlist (broadcast just after 5pm on 3rd February, 2017, at 17:02:20 - or 32:02:20 minutes into the programme).

This brief fanfare is scored for 4 trumpets, 4 horns, 3 trombones + tuba, 2 sets of timpani, plus percussion – comprising bass drum, snare drum, suspended cymbals and 2 tam-tams. The 2 sets of timpani are ideally to be positioned at either side of the stage, with the rest of the brass stretching across the front of the stage, in an arc (with percussion behind). Finally, the 2 sets of 2 trumpeters are positioned on each side of the auditorium balcony (opposite and facing the stage) – for maximum spatial effect.
